You can’t go to Edinburgh in August and not someone you recognise, usually a Journalist of Comedian who has featured on Top 100 Donald Trump Tweets on Channel 5 (Not an actual TV show yet but it is surely a matter of time).
Sometimes, you actually see people who are famous.
So, here is a list of people who have been on the telly at some point I spotted while I was in Edinburgh recently.
Saturday 5th August
Angela Barnes – Walking though a bar at Pleasance.
Sunday 6th August
Clive Anderson* – Walking along George Street.
Greg Proops – Walking into The Assembly Rooms.
Monday 7th August
Jeremy Vine** – Eating his dinner in the same restaurant I was in.
*A second appearance on this blog for him. Like his last appearance, I ended up laughing to myself about that Brass Eye sketch.
**His brother has already beaten him to appearing on this blog by a few years.
You may have noticed the absence of Al Murray. I didn’t even walk past him once. I didn’t even think it was possible to go to Edinburgh in August and not see Al Murray.
